Summer is not winding down unless we are off picking berries at Berry Patch Farms.
This has been a tradition I have had with the children since Jack was a toddler.
We are usually met each year by friends and this year my sister and her two girls joined us.
We spent the morning picking raspberries (the strawberry fields were closed for the day) and putting as many in our mouths as we went along.
Benjamin is old enough this year that he loved picking them and filling up his container.
There is something so sweet, simple and relaxing about being on this farm.
Living in Colorado you don't see as many farms as in Illinois….where I grew up.
It is such a wonderful treat to spend the morning roaming around the farm, eating fresh foods and petting the extremely scary looking pig….he was soooo cute LAST year!!!
We always pack a lunch and eat it in the shade of the huge trees on the property.
We can't leave without shopping in the barn.
The barn is full of amazing fresh produce from their farm and surrounding organic farmers.
If you are in the Denver area and have never stopped by Berry Patch Farms you are missing out.
They even have a wonderful pumpkin patch in the fall.
I guess this means that summer is heading out and fall is creeping its way in.
It will be time for school to start for us soon, but in the mean time we will be putting berries on everything we eat!
